I am not happy ( before Zak makes the comment - I don't know which of the other dwarfs I am ) the sails have now been soaked in tea and have a good colour BUT they are very even, with no colour difference. 
The photo of the square sail has had coffee granuals soaked onto it - the triangular one has been painted with very small drops of vallejo paint onto the material and then lots of water added to wash it into the sail.
I think the coffee one looks more natural !!!!!!!!

First go at coffee stain on the sail a complete wash out ( the jokes are getting worse) you can see the granule of coffee on the sail and then hot water added to the granule. When it was finished I put the whole sail in a tray of water and surprise surprise the coffee stain just disappeared.
Back to the drawing board and this time after the coffee granule and drops of hot water, I just washed the stain into the sail with more water on a brush - so I hade more control of the effect.
Now to let it dry and see the final result.

All this colouring reminds me of a character from Captain Pugwash.

Now Zak has had his food.
A couple of racks made for the belaying pins at the base of the mast.
